The Biden administration hit the ground running with an explosive agenda focusing on three crises that require immediate attention without delay: first, the COVID-19 pandemic; second, the related purported weak economy, especially COVID-related job losses that require a stronger stimulus than we have seen so far, in President Biden Joe Biden Biden offers support to union organizing efforts Senate Democrats nix 'Plan B' on minimum wage hike Kavanaugh dismays conservatives by dodging pro-Trump election lawsuits MORE ’s opinion; and third, the economic inequality crisis. The trilogy of crises follows former White House chief of staff and Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel’s famous adage: Never let a crisis go to waste. President Biden has invented three to focus his attention and build voter support, in part because three is more compelling than one. Current emphasis is mainly on the second leg of the trilogy — the economic fallout from the coronavirus — probably because … [Read more...] about Biden’s trumped-up rescue plan is a solution looking for a problem
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic has been felt around the globe. More than 114 million cases have been reported worldwide, and 2.5 million deaths. The United States has seen 28 million of those cases, and more than half a million people have died. That’s higher than American death tolls for World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam War combined. In New York City, there are more than 600,000 confirmed cases, and nearly 25,000 deaths. The city was one of the first hard hit in the country. From March to May, it was the epicenter of the virus. As CBS2’s Aundrea Cline-Thomas reported, it was a devastating period that changed the city profoundly.

FENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The viral pandemic has triggered a cascade of price hikes throughout America’s auto industry — a surge that has made both new and used vehicles unaffordable for many. Prices of new vehicles far outpaced overall consumer inflation over the past year. In response, many buyers who were priced out of that market turned to used vehicles. Yet their demand proved so potent that used-vehicle prices soared even more than new ones did. The price of an average new vehicle jumped 6% between January of last year, before the coronavirus erupted in the United States, and December to a record $40,578, according to data from Edmunds.com. Yet that increase was nothing next to what happened in the used market. The average price of a used vehicle surged nearly 14% — roughly 10 times the rate of inflation — to over $23,000. It was among the fastest such increases in decades, said Ivan Drury, a senior manager of insights for Edmunds.com. The main reason for the exploding … [Read more...] about New or used? Either way, price hikes squeeze U.S. auto buyers.
(CNN) When your phone goes off in the middle of the night, it isn't usually good news. At best, it signals a call into action, albeit with a foggy head and a scrambled mind. At worst, the incessant ringing or buzzing represents news of a dreadful event, or an impending one. As the British rower Jasmine Harrison discovered, being woken up at 4 a.m. -- when you're all alone in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean -- is a harbinger of all of the above. "Oh my God," Harrison declared on a video recording that she made of the incident, "I'm actually shaking. This is as scary as anything!" Read More She was roughly halfway through a daring solo adventure -- rowing across the Atlantic -- when she realized that she was teetering on the brink of total calamity. Her tiny 550-pound (249 kilograms) rowing boat was on a collision course with a drilling ship, which could easily have swatted her asunder without ever knowing that she was there. Recalling the incident … [Read more...] about Jasmine Harrison delights in Atlantic Ocean world record row
